I’m a new member, what should I expect at a meeting?

Expect to be greeted by an Executive Committee member and asked to sign-in at the check-in table. There will be a cash bar and time for mingling with other fabulous, like-minded women.

Generally, our meetings will go as follows:

5:30 pm – Check-in and mingling

6:30 pm – Meeting begins

  • Opening remarks by Executive Committee.
  • The charity that received the funds from the previous meeting will be asked to say a few words of thanks and tell the group how their donations were/will be used and what the impact their donations made on the organization.
  • An explanation of the charity selection and voting process is given.
  • Three (3) nominated charities will be selected at random from the hat.
  • The members who nominated those three (3) charities will each have five (5) minutes to present their charity to the group (no PowerPoint or collateral materials, please). A brief Q&A will follow each presenter.
  • Members will submit their anonymous ballot and the votes are tabulated.
  • The charity with the most votes is announced.
  • The next meeting and venue are announced.

7:30 pm – Meeting is adjourned. Stay and mingle more or head home.
